As the fight over CISPA continues (apparently with some concerns that the existing bill is effectively dead in the water), the White House announced a new voluntary program for companies to share info about botnets in order to stop them. This raises the question, yet again, why we need laws like CISPA in the first place. Companies and the government can already share threat information without violating anyone's privacy. All CISPA and similar bills are really doing is making it easier to violate privacy rules when sharing that kind of information.
